Hello Weewolves, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you give more details on what you mean by fix??

What's wrong with it, and what are you wanting to do?

a game on facebook sent me here and I was trying to find the compatibility view on IE9. I found it after hitting alt T. they are having issues with zynga not working on IE 9 and the only "fix" is to turn on compatibility view untill zynga comes up with a permanent fix for their game. Was just trying to find and now have! Thanks so much for your help and the quick reply!
